‘Genshin Impact’ Reveals Kokomi Trailer, Full Moveset And Release Date

Genshin Impact Kokomi

Genshin Impact is not slowing down after the release of Baal (Ei?) The Raiden Shogun, and we’re about to get a new 5 star hero from the game. That would be Baal’s opposite in the now-ended Vision Hunt Decree war, the resistance general Kokomi, a 5 star hydro catalyst user, our first since Mona. She will be arriving on September 21, 2021.

MiHoYo has just debuted a new trailer for Kokomi which you can see below, that indicates how she has a penchant for commanding wars, despite the fact that she may not look the part:

But more important, we now know the full extent of Kokomi’s moveset, and how she will operate as a healer on our team.

Elemental Skill: Kurage’s Oath

Summons a "Bake-Kurage" created from water that can heal her allies. Using this skill will apply the Wet status to Sangonomiya Kokomi.

Bake-Kurage: Deals Hydro DMG to surrounding opponents and heal nearby active characters at fixed intervals. This healing is based on Kokomi's Max HP.

Elemental Burst: Nereid’s Ascension

Summons the might of Watatsumi dealing Hydro DMG to surrounding enemies, before robing Kokomi in a Ceremonial Garment made from the flowing waters of Sangonomiya.

Ceremonial Garment

  • Sangonomiya Kokomi's Normal Attack, Charged Attack and Bake-Kurage DMG are increased based on her Max HP.
  • When her Normal and Charged Attacks hit opponents, Kokomi will restore HP for all nearby party members, and the amount restored is based on her Max HP.
  • Increases Sangonomiya Kokomi's resistance to interruption and allows her to move on the water's surface.

These effects will be cleared once Sangonomiya Kokomi leaves the field.

Past her skills, Kokomi will of course have her own 5 star weapon that launches with her, a catalyst that will specifically bolster her kit. Here’s what Everlasting Moonglow can do:

Healing Bonus increased by 10/12.5/15/17.5/20%, Normal Attack DMG is increased by 1/1.5/2/2.5/3% of Max HP of the character equipping this weapon. For 12s after using an Elemental Burst, Normal Attacks that hit opponents will restore 0.6 Energy. Energy can be restored this way once every 0.1s.

Seems good for her, Barbara and uh, well that’s really it, given the focus on healing.

Will she be a sought-after hero? Probably not as much as the last few, given that most people love to focus on DPS, and healing heroes just aren’t as exciting, which is why everyone bemoans pulling Jean and Qiqi these days. But who knows, maybe this kit will be good enough to make her sought-after, and we’ll see how the meta shakes out next week.
